I celebrated my 25th birthday in Mykonos this July! I had the most amazing birthday with 13 of my close friends. It was everything I could have wished for and more. It was my second time to Mykonos and its an island I will probably keep going back to because its so a beautiful and I always feel at peace there.

The villa we stayed in was stunning! I actually booked a villa that I never saw. As soon as we got there, we had been upgraded to a beautiful villa and the second night, we were upgraded again – everyone knew apart from me, so it was a lovely birthday surprise! The team that organised the villa for us were amazing and were also incredible throughout the trip. Please reach out if you require details! I highly recommend.

At the beginning of 2018, I knew I wanted to travel more and try new things. The ‘everyday me’ would never have planned a birthday away with so many friends, but it was a quick decision I made early in January and I am super grateful to have friends that were so eager to join me ! zero regrets.

I have include photos below of the villas we stayed in and Scorpios beach club. The villas had a typical greek vibe mixes of bleach white and blues. I keep on trying to put my finger on my favourite part of the trip and I still cants put it down to one moment- it was just highlight after highlight and that was truly down to the people with me and the surroundings.

Before the trip, everyone recommended Scorpios beach club. I had already been to Nammos the first time I was in Mykonos, so I knew I had to try somewhere new and I am really glad I did. The interiors were amazing- all the materials are organic and complements the bohemian style. The furniture is very simplistic and rustic but the whole space still maintains a luxurious feel. Its a party environment, but there are different spaces depending on the vibe you’re going for.

In terms of places to go when visiting Mykonos, I would definitely try Lohan Beach club, Scorpios and Spilia restaurant.
